Just out of interest, is there a time delay on this site when people post because I was looking on it just now & there were posts that were being replied to at 3 in the morning?!!

Surely, if that is really the case, its a bit of a worry?!

I do really like this site but being on it all hours of the night seems a tad OTT!

Britain's a 24 hour economy, so we need a 24 hour website.

Then again, maybe there are some on here who are not in Britain.

Then again, maybe some work shifts, or are unemployed (kept men!), or are still on holiday, or...

Dunno, mate. No idea.

Maybe their computers are set to the wrong time?

Other countries maybe?!

Could be :P

The overnight posters consist of those abroad, various insomniacs and lunatics (what happened to RightFredsDead?) and those too cheap to rent - so they hole up in internet cafes each night.

The question for you is why does it worry you so much what other people do with their time? And if you are addicted to the site you might leave it alone for a while, it'll still be here when you return as this "crash" will drag on for a looong time.

The date used is the server's one (which is correct),

so the date on the user's computer almost certainly wouldn't cause this.

Its just as addictive as smack mate. Now I wonder if anyone ever posts under the influence of old horsey? :blink:

Its not so much that it worries me what other people do with their time :lol: more that its a bit scary that entire lives are devoted to posting on here at all hours of the day and night- While I like this site, I would rather be tucked up in bed not worrying about house prices at 3 in the morning! But maybe its just me! ;)

Well my excuse is that it helps while away a very quiet night shift :) It does get a lot quieter in the small hours up to around 7am so I don't think there are too many weirdos out there

It's probably the middle of the night in London right now (?) but it's 1:40 pm in the afternoon where I am (Australia).

International posters would explain quite a few of the 3am etc posts I would think.

How is the crash going in Oz?

I am a friend who tells me denial in Sydney has given way.

Are you anywhere near the Fear stage yet?

There is no doubt that there are some obsessive posters on this site. No need to mention names! I also sometomes wonder about the mental health of some of the more obsessive posters.

The site is addictive though - I am midly addicted and I don't even particularly care what happens to house prices! (I bought in late 1999).

'Morning.

I've just woken up to find myself slumped on my keyboard. Will have to walk around for the rest of the day with a keyboard imprint across the side of my face.

This site is very addictive, and trying to balance it with spending time with family is a challenge. Mrs Lad thinks I'm on one of those porn chatrooms, and in a way, I suppose I am! :rolleyes:

The fear doesn't really seem to be hear yet, but more and more "cheap" houses are appearing on the market and the falling prices are accepted by the mainstream media as fact.

The exception is Western Australia however, which seems to be near a blow-off top at the moment. Prices in Perth having overtaken Melbourne and Brisbane and are getting close to Sydney - a reversal of long established relativities that just doesn't make sense. WA isn't exactly short on land...
